An 83-year-old grandmother has received the Prime Minister’s Point of Light award for her voluntary work.
Barbara Waterman, from Hendon, north-west London, received the award, which recognises outstanding volunteers, for her work at Stepney Jewish Community Centre in east London – which has a declining Jewish community.
Jewish Care's biggest grassroots event of the year saw a record 4,500 people from London and the surrounding areas take part in its annual Great Jewish Bake Day, designed to raise awareness, involvement and, on a small scale, funds.
Cake was the unifying factor as pupils, staff, supporters, volunteers and clients - plus a dozen shops and kosher bakeries - engaged in a variety of activities link
Richard Bernstein and Darren Brown had a powerful family reason to run for Jewish Care. They wanted to thank the charity for the care their grandmothers received at the charity's Vi and John Rubens home in Redbridge.
